Reports from our team on the ground at Ferguson say that authorities have started using pepper spraying protestors. So far, police officers have made a few arrests, including a young girl.
The St. Louis Police responded to reports that the girl was 12 years old on Twitter, saying that she is 18 years old according to her ID.

Police seem to be continuing to arrest protestors and journalists on the ground, although most of the commotion has died down at this point.
Complex's Ross Scarano reported that police and protestors are crowded together at a McDonald's.
Situation has cooled. Florissant is closed to traffic by Ferguson Ave. Protesters are playing Pac. Cops lined up in center lane #Ferguson— Ross Scarano (@RossScarano) August 11, 2015
The St. Louis County Police Department said on Twitter that they will arrest protestors "who choose to act violently" for unlawful assembly.
More bottles thrown in an attempt to hit a drone flying around. Hit police vehicle instead. #Ferguson— B. Jenkins (@Jersey_Jinx) August 11, 2015
